We offer complete body on / off car restoration services including show quality paint, mechanical repairs, engine building, suspension upgrades, wiring, upholstery, rust repair, metal fabrication and air brush graphics. You drive it - We fix it! 
We're glad to say we don't do insurance work because it isn't any fun... Meanwhile,  we are doing everything else that is fun; show quality paint jobs, stock restorations and mild-to-wild rod builds - you know, all the really cool stuff.
Most restorations and rod builds are going to receive a new interior; let us do it along with everything else. Now you don't have to go look for auto upholstery shops or move your vehicle from shop to shop! Praise The Lowered! 
Now we can personalize your ride just the way you like it! We do freehand airbrushing, graphics, line striping, flames and more. Allow your imagination to run wild!

We have good news and bad news. The good news:Highly skilled fabricators are hard to find and we have some very good ones here! The bad news? Your car isn't here! Come see our complete metal shop. We can fabricate most any metal part needed on-demand!

About Us


Why the unusual name? In the past we were the owners of Top Secret Coatings; a small manufacturer of Government-spec and industrial coatings located here in Arlington WA. In 2013 we sold the company to a larger manufacturer so we had a decision to make; invest in rentals and retire, or do something we really wanted to do. We decided to have some fun and open a one-stop shop specializing in Custom Rod Building and Classic Cars. So our shop is our idea of having a good time! Naming the new shop Top Secret Customs & Restorations just seemed to make sense at the time. 


Top Secret Customs & Restorations is the only complete one-stop restoration shop in western Washington - we do most every aspect of the vehicle build process under one roof. We've put together the largest shop of its kind in the Northwest, brought in skilled craftsmen and technicians to work with us, combined with the best equipment available. We think you will find we are unusually fair, friendly, and the quality of the workmanship and the value you receive to be excellent. Come see us and see for yourself what makes us different!


NOTE: If you are looking for insurance work by typical Collision Shops or Auto Body Shops - that's not us! Sorry we do not do insurance work.
